How do I know if I am pre-entered? Did I get in? You will receive an email confirmation from Mototally that includes your rider name, class, and receipt of payment.
When will you there be row assignments? Rider number/row assignment will be issued at registration and Mototally will post a rider entry list approx 2-3 weeks prior to the event. We will share that on our pre-event page of the website and on social media. At that time, please re-verify your class and AMA#. If you have any updates or corrections immediately email email@example.com as this changes rows/rider numbers and is imperative to complete prior to onsite registration.
Can I ride a different class each day? Yes, purchase a 2-day entry and select the class you will ride in Saturday, then in the comments field enter the class you will ride Sunday. If you forgot any of the above on pre-entry immediately email firstname.lastname@example.org and specify the class for each day.

Do I need an AMA card? Absolutely!! This is an AMA sanctioned event. You MUST have an AMA card. Do not leave home without it!
Can I join AMA at event? Yes, however to ensure a smooth registration and scoring we recommend you join or renew prior to pre-entry. We will have AMA memberships available for sale at registration. If you forgot your card you will have to buy a new one or you will not ride. Email email@example.com your new or updated AMA#.
How are row assignments drawn? We run three riders per row. We start by skill level. All the AA, then A, then B, then C. Rows within these skill levels are based on time of entry. NOTE: If you want to ride with your buddy you need to enter at about the same time. See website for details.
Can I ride with my buddies? Absolutely, with one catch. You need to all enter at the same time. One rider can complete the entry for all of you. The catch is all the riders who want to ride together MUST be at the same skill level.
How many riders can be on a buddy team? You can sign up as many riders in a group to ride together as you want. We start three riders per row, so we will break up the group into rows of three; or two and two; or three, two, two etc. depending on the number in group. Want them in a certain order? Use the comment field when entering and let us know how you want yourselves distributed. Again, remember only three riders per row.
Why do I bring my helmet to sign-up? Moto-Tally has to code your transponder to scoring.

Why does my bike need to be clean at tech inspection? A requirement of our special use permits is the bike be clean of noxious weeds. Just make sure your bike is clean when you go through tech inspection. If you get it dirty jetting it then a bucket, water, and a sponge will be in order. Clean means under the fenders as well. This is the place people miss most often.
Where can I find the rules? AMA website provides the current AMA Competition Rulebook and additional Supplemental Rules are on our website at https://boiseridgeriders.org/rules
GAS / FUEL QUESTIONS:
Why must my gas can be approved? Forest Service regulations require fuel to be in a RED approved container. Our permit mandates any fuel we transport be in approved containers. See information on our website about the fuel requirements.
What is an “approved” gas can? Approved gas cans are plastic or metal. In all cases they are red and say “Gasoline” on them. Those other color jugs you love are not approved gas containers.
Why must I have my gas can inspected? We must ensure the fuel containers we transport are safe and in compliance with our permit. Inspection at tech gives you and us time address any concerns.
How many gas cans do I need to bring? There are two gas locations for long course riders and short course. Stops are 35-40 miles apart.
Can my crew go to the gas stop? Yes, there will be one open fuel stop see Rider Map at registration.
How far between gas stops? No more than 35-40 miles.
What is the altitude? 4,000 to 7,000
Are there many rocks? We would not call the terrain rocky, but there are rocks.
What kind of tire should I use? The area is mostly decomposed granite which when dry is very, very slick. Depends on trail conditions, but a softer tire will usually work better.
Is there a jetting area? No marked jetting area, but there are plenty of trails/roads in area to test your jetting.
What will the trail conditions be like? If it rains-great. If it don’t, well depends on how hot this spring is. Could be dusty.
Can we come back and ride course after event? Much of the course is on public land that is open to recreation. The start/finish area is private property and not open after the event, so do not park here! You should get a MVUM map from Forest Service to make sure you are riding on open trails. Most of the trails have been signed in the Idaho City area. Our course uses only approved open trails. Some trails this year are on private property and are not open after the event. So, yes you are welcome to come back and ride on open public trails only respect private land owners and do not trespass.
Where can I get trail maps? Boise National Forest website and Idaho Department of Lands website.
